Timberwolves at Clippers picks and predictions

Prediction

Timberwolves 122, Clippers 118

Moneyline

The Clippers have lost 2 in a row, 2 home games in a row and 4 of their last 5 games at Crypto.com Arena. They are allowing 132.0 points per game in their last 5 contests.

The Timberwolves, although 11-18 on the road this season, are 3-3 in their last 6 road games, alternating wins and losses, with their last road game a loss. If they crack the 120-point mark, they are hard to beat, having won 4 of their last 5 games scoring at least 120 points.

If you want to go for a big payout, this game is worth it. BET TIMBERWOLVES (+200).

Against the spread

Minnesota is 12-17 ATS on the road this season, while L.A. is 13-16 ATS at home. The Timberwolves have failed to cover the spread in their last 3 games and have not gone longer than 3 games this season without covering it.

The Clippers are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games and are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games.

If you aren’t quite as confident in the Timberwolves winning outright, go ahead and lean on them to cover at least, as they have not lost to the spread in 4 consecutive games yet this season.

BET TIMBERWOLVES +6.5 (-112).

Over/Under

The Over is 4-0 in the Clippers’ last 4 games and LA has allowed 132.0 points per game in the last 5 games.

The Over is 4-1 in the Timberwolves’ last 5 games road games and in their last 5 road games against teams with a winning home record.

BET OVER 234.5 (-105).
